Overview

Thanks to our state partnership with the New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC), we are pleased to share this PD session on the 2020 Voter Education, Registration, and Action (VERA) campaign.

The VERA campaign of 2020 is a non-partisan effort designed for adult education programs in the New England states. Its goal is to educate adult learners about voting and current election issues, and mobilize them to vote in the 2020 elections.

In this webinar, the NELRC team will introduce you to the VERA campaign, website, and resources you can use to adopt VERA in your program. 

Because this PD is being offered by NELRC, please register here rather than on the SABES calendar. 

For more information, please contact Luanne_Teller@worlded.org

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Adult education program directors and their teams who wish to provide their learners with access to non-partisan information and resources related to the 2020 election
Description

Join NELRC for this webinar introducing its new VERA materials for 2020. The election process is more complicated this year due to the pandemic, which makes it that much more important to share information with students about how to vote, why voting matters, and how to make sense of current debates about voter suppression and fraud. 

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this professional development activity/course, you will be able to:

  • Explain what the VERA campaign is and how to adopt it
  • Locate ready-to-use resources available on the VERA website
  • Help learners access non-partisan information about their local election sites, candidates, and ballot questions
